romney and paul ryan canceled events scheduled in wisconsin today and tomorrow. president obama's campaign event that was scheduled for tomorrow in green bay is also on hold in the badger state. and it's ten electoral votes are critical to mitt romney's hope to unseat president obama especially if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very e
and democratic governors. but listen talk about fema. paul ryan, his budget cut -- "new york times" reports this morning. congressional republicans cut 43% out of the primary fema grants that pay for disaster preparedness. remember eric cantor. remember peter, eric cantor, the hurricane struck his district fema wanted to go in there. they wanted more money because of some of the disasters. they asked for more money to deal with the earthquake. even in cantor's district. he said no. we're not going to give fema anymore money unless you cut money from healthcare, you know. so they've been -- anti-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or atlantic city, if you had to count on who? name it. some -- some security firm, blackwell. or something. halliburton. >> there are pictures of firefighters in water up to their chests wadi
and paul ryan. storm watch coverage continues and we have an important you for the risks with using generators after a storm. a live look outside right now, there is a, after the storm. the storm.er storm. t[ mitt romney ] there are two very different paths the country can take. one is a path represented by the president, which, at the end of four years, it'd mean we'd have $20 trillion in debt. i'll get people back to work with 12 million new jobs. i'm gonna make s sure that wget people off of food stamps not by cutting the program but by getting them good jobs. i'll work with you. i'll lead you in an open and honest way and to ma sure that we all together maintain america as the hope of the earth. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. we were told to build a 30-foot stage. gathered the guys and we built that 30-foot stage, not knowing what it was for. just dayays later, all three shifts were told to assemble in the warehouse. a group of people walked out on that stage and told us that thelant is now closed and all of you are fired... i looked both ways, i looked at the crow
of it too. you look at paul ryan's budget for instance. he wants to slash funding to fema, tried on multiple occasions. he also is advancing this really hair-brained idea that was pedalled around a lot by eric cantor last year. where they demand that any disaster-relief funding that the government dolls out after hurricane sandy and the tornado in missouri whatever that has to be offset with budget cuts elsewhere, so they are saying we are going to hold hostage any funding that going to disaster relief unless we can get the other side to cut education national parks whatever else. and these are not cuts that people want to make. so the relief funding is going to get delayed or completely held up. >> wow. >> so every time that there is a natural disaster where funds are needed immediately, congress has to have a big fight over what they are going to cut in order to fund disaster relief. >> yeah. insane. >> they just seems like the height of irresponsibility. >> also if you think about it too, though if you cut this federal funding in what position does someone
of the way. >> my favorite whopper was when paul ryan said that the reason that they don't want to say how they will change the loopholes is because they'll be attacked. people will say mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." th from the st rhless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, but there's, there's one other thing. sometimes you sin by omission. and when the candidates suggest that their plans are going to be sufficient to address the crisis that we are facing, the decit debt crisishat we're cing in eironmenthiche can't afford to tank the economy, they are implying something that's fundamentally false, given what they've told us. president obama is telling us how he's going to get some extra revenue by tax increases. but he's not going to get enough that way. a
decisive action when lives are at risk. unlike mitt romney and paul ryan, who said that they would bloc grant fema funding to states. states are having fiscal problems and that responsibility would fall to them. it's so unfortunate that we have people that take these ex prem p -- extreme positions just to score political points. when you're in harm's way you don't want a private company that's trying to save money. you want a government that will do what is required to save lives and that's not the policy that mitt romney or his twin paul ryan have advanced while they have been in office. they have done just the opposite unfortunately. >> mayor reed, i'm sorry to press you on this, but isn't that the point of the way these gentlemen have been speaking? this is their patently clear philosophy, and yet when it collides with reality on a day like this, it's not something that the people of america like at all. the idea that we're going to make the responsibility for emergency relief not just in the hands of the states but preferably according to mr. romney in the hands of private businesse
, that is the right call. >> reporter: governor mitt romney scheduled a storm relief rally in ohio today. he and paul ryan are urging supporters to donate. >> swing by, give a hand -- >> make sure we do our very best to help those being impacted by the storm. >> anything he says injects pure politics into it. so you want to be careful if you're the romney need to keep an eye on it, obviously. but don't necessarily try to get in front of the story in any way. >> reporter: one week before the election, polls are tied, but campaigning at a standstill. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. >> reporter: families also affected by jobs, but the labor department is telling us this morning that the jobs report, the last one before the election due out on friday, will likely come out on time. they've had people crunching the numbers at home while the federal government has been closed. lynn? >> tracie potts in washington, thanks so much. >>> as we button up this show, obviously a lot of people, we want to extend all of our thoughts to ever
paul ryan will hold storm relief events instead. their campaign is not saying what those events will involve. yesterday romney asked supporters at some of the rallies to donate to the red cross. >>> governor martin o'malley ordered all early voting stations in the state to close because of sandy. he has ordered early voting through november 2nd to make up for the days. the board of elections postponed early voting in the district today as well. >>> coastal communities are waking up to the heaviest damage this morning. >> erica gonzalez is getting a firsthand look on what kind of impact flooding had on dewey beach, virginia. erica, yesterday you were being swept away by the winds. it looks much calmer this morning. >> reporter: you know, it is much calmer, but the biggest difference this morning is it is about ten degrees cooler or colder this morning than it was yesterday. i'm shivering. i've got on rain pants, but i need to put on another layer underneath because i'm freezing out here. we're in the 40s, and the rain is just slightly falling. but the biggest thing yesterday, her
're saying is exactly right. he picked paul ryan as vice presidential nominee who's basically against pro choice and also against gay rights and defending medicare. i mean, this is who mitt romney is. he can't get away from that. >> let's not even go there. let me play to you what mitt romney said regarding roe versus wade. >> there we go. >> i hope to appoint justices to the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution. it would be my preference that they reverse roe v. wade. >> that would be my preference that they reverse roe versus wade. you play that and you show what coleman just said on his behalf. come o we're not talking about friends. we're talking about moderate mitt himself. >> it's not even moderate mitt. what is happening is he's basically -- you're right. he has his own words to be used against him but also disingenuous when senator coleman was saying what bush did for the supreme court. it's a gradual term. three supreme court justices are in their mid-70s, one in questionable health, you just need to appoint one to the supreme court and roe versus wade will
: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and following on -- host: of one week to go and looking at the momentum in colorado. the num

an appearance in wisconsin tonight. paul ryan cancelled rallies in florida and both republicans cleared their campaign schedules tomorrow. >>> and superstorm sandy is turning lives upside down. giving you a look at the storm right now. it came ashore in new jersey earlier today, wind gusts 80 to 85 miles per hour. those winds are still gusting to 80 miles per hourment sandy is a post-trorm. it has merged with a winter storm and now is not only bringing heavy rain, a strong storm surge and the wind, snow. the appalachian mountains are looking at blizzard-like conditions through the evening hours. this is going to continue inland at this point. you can see just how widespread the heavy rain is falling all the way into the ohio valley. if we take a look at the sandy and its path, it's going to continue its wersly track into pennsylvania as we progress through tomorrow and then it's going to make a northerly track right into new york by about wensz. weshgs of course, will be tracking this through the evening and all day tomorrow. gasia. >>> superstorm sandy is disrupting travel nationwide i
cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower manhattan. everybody has been keeping an eye on the storm surge and wondering how high the water is going to rise. and what threat it's going to impose. what can you tell us about the conditions and how they are changing now? >> reporter: they have certainly deteriorat deteriorat deteriorated. we have a photo to show you. there's some water that's been reported gushing into the brooklyn battery tunnel.
to the east coast to help now. they're coming from all over. >> well, mitt romney and paul ryan have canceled all of their campaign events tomorrow and at their last event in ohio romney asked people to help if they can. >> i want to mention that our hearts and prayers are with all the people in the storm's path. sandy is another devastating hurricane by all accounts and a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of sandy's fury and so if you have the capacity to make a donation to american red cross, you can go online and do that. if there are other ways you can help, please take advantage of them because there will be a lot of people looking for help and the people of ohio have big heart, so we're expecting you to follow through and help out. >> well, we know early voting was canceled yesterday in maryland and power outages will certainly cause more problems for early voting but what about an actual delay of election day. it could happen. let's go to pete williams, nbc justice correspondent, but, pete, really? >> it could but it probably won't and, you know, to
heatwave, which july was the hottest month in recorded history in america just 8.7%. paul ryan's workouts were covered three times more than the loss of arctic sea ice. finally, between 2009 and 2011, coverage of climate change during t.v. news dropped by 90%. climate change. ridiculous. we're not going to make that mistake here on the young turks. to help us talk about this issue. we've brought in two of our own experts, mark thomson long time weatherman here in l.a. and someone who cares passionately about this issue and has for a long time has joined us as well. let me talk to you first about this storm and why we might think that this weather event could be part of the climate change that we're seeing on a macro level as i just laid out. >> of course, you're really good to point out the macro level because it's the constellation of things that you mentioned and more. it's not just this one super storm although this storm was remarkable because it brought together three distinct complexes of atmosphere disturbance into one big horror show as we've seen. when you look at sea surface tem

in duluth. mitt romney is taking place in stark relief efforts in ohio. paul ryan is holding informal greetings in wisconsin. the romney campaign announcing that a political rally in des moines, iowa would go on as scheduled tonight and ann romney will fill in for her husband. >> these are the stores are textbook left out. great stories about real people in american history. a very important promise that we do not know about your the first programs in america came 50 years before the mayflower sailed, there were french, they made wine, they had the good sense to land in florida in june instead of december. but then there were wiped out by the spanish, but we left that out of the textbooks. the most famous woman in america, she was taken captive by indians in new hampshire, and the middle of the night, she'd killed her captor, realized she could get out of bounty, she went back, stopped them and went back to boston where she was a heroine. they showed her with a hatchet in one hand in a statute. >> canada davis is our guest on sunday. he is the best selling series -- do not know much.
with mitt romney and paul ryan. [applause] >> let me ask you, will you do everything you can do to ensure we can bring back america's promise. are you going to do it? put up your hand if you're going to make phone calls, commit to mitt today. let me see your hands. commit to mitt. this year, in ohio, you can commit early to mitt. go down to lorraine, 1985 north ridge road and vote early. you can leave after the event here -- and then on election day we cna find five people we know to get to the polls to commit to mitt. going for it. and we have to help the republican team. he needs a team that is with him. we have to make sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and
and they are not in power in the cannot do much. with the mitt romney-paul ryan ticket. >> i think that some people are more risk and our thoughts and prayers are with them. >> and the itinerary could also change. some tricky schedules could impact because of the storm. a disaster summer would make this difficult politics and -- making this difficult. >> as a reminder kron 4 will have extended live coverage on election night. tuesday, november 6th at 8:00 p.m. and also stay updated on our website www.kron4.com our facebook and twitter. we will be back. >>jacqueline: of a live look from our golden gate bridge camera. the dense fog is expected overnight in the north bay. there is a dense fog advisory into effect with the cloudy morning and sunny and mild conditions for this afternoon. wednesday, but changes the clouds will stick around. late wednesday and thursday. the fog tracker is fairly widespread. danced through the north bay. and still stay with us. and even through 1:00 p.m. we will continue to see fog in the bay area. as we take a look at the dense fog advisory. by 9:00 a.m. and is expected to lift in
on the campaign trail with just eight precious days before election day. republican paul ryan was in florida. and vice president biden replaced the president at a late day event in ohio. so what impact will the storm have on the final week of the swhatmpt will thetorm have on the final week of the race? to examine that and the state of the campaign, we are joined by susan page, washington bureau chief of "u.s.a. today," and dan balz, chief correspondent of the "washington post." welcome to you both. dan, to you first. what effect is this big storm having on the campaign? >> well, as you've reported, it has shut down campaign activity for the most part. that will continue to be the case at least until wednesday when both campaigns re-evaluate whether it's prudent or proper for either president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign tail. there orati with very little information. we can't know at this point just how devastating the damage might turn out to be. as a result i think both campaigns are being very cautious about what they do other than paying attention to the storm. >>
. at a rally in florida yesterday, paul ryan urged supporters to lend a hand to all the storm victims. >> let's send our prayers and our thoughts to the people in the northeast. floridians, you are no stranger to big storms. you know better than anyone on the need for communities to come together and for neighbors to help one another. >> first lady michelle obama at a campaign event in iowa city says the president is putting his political schedule on hold because sandy is his priority. >>> and west virginiaens are expected to get hammered by heavy and wet snow. sandy's not sparing anyone. as much as three feet of it is expected in higher elevations and a blizzard warning is in effect for ten counties there. the snow threatens to bring down power lines and people are being advised as they are here to stay indoors, soledad. >> what a mess. what a mess. zoraida, thank you for the update. we take a short break. within we come back on the other side, we tell you what's happening with that massive house fire -- i should say fire of two dozen homes in breezy point in queens. we know it's related to
a 43% reduction in fema grants. paul ryan others have tried to refuse budget requests when disasters are more expensive or other programs be cut to pay for them. the ryan budget which mr. romney praised as an excellent piece of work with result in severe cutbacks to the agency as would republican i understand city gated sequester that could relief 8.2%. mr. romney believe that financially stressed states would do a better job than properly functioning federal agency? that is "new york times" editorial. a call from louisville, ohio. rex. independent caller. caller: i'm looking at the question and somebody will have to come to the realization that we are dealing with education regurgitation. because you said trust in government through natural disaster. could we trust so-called government in getting in to illegal unfunded wars or trust the government dealing with hiding fascist trade agreements or $4 for a gallon of gas? so, no, we can't trust the government. but the problem is the question. because the government is the people. if you go to the constitution, it is a government for the
event. it's taking place in ohio. paul ryan will drop by campaign offices in hudson and lacrosse, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >> right. this is an opportunity for him to be the president, to be the commander in chief, to make that case. if there's a problem with fema's response, if there's a glitch that develops, but i think
romney is about to kick off a disaster relief event in ohio. he and paul ryan have scrapped official campaign stops in the wake of the storm. the governor asking people in iowa last night to help and remember those affected up and down the eastern seaboard. >> american red cross is, of course, accepting donations and if you have a little extra you can send off to the american red cross, join us in doing that and make sure we do our very best to help those that are being impacted by the storm. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> great advice at this time of need. joining me now is john spiteser, communications director for the republican national committee. it's good to see you this morning and mitt romney is not going have any official stops today. one thing i do want to play for everybody, the comment played a few minutes ago by new jersey governor chris christie about the election next week. we are down to the pivotal days left. >> this administration at the moment could give a damn less about election day. >> all right. if you give a damn -- i know chris christie said
which is his running mate paul ryan and house republican positions and those that say it's moral hazard to spend any money on federal disaster relief because we're borrow fromming our kids. if you want to give federal money to private contractors, we're fine with that. >> the remarks he made last year in the primary, he kouchds it in moral terms when nothing brings into sharp focus, more reality and our role as our brother's keeper as times like this. have to field those questions at this time. >> there are no fox holes and no anti-government conservatives in hurricanes. when the hurricane comes everyone wants big brother and help. because there is some problems only government has a scale to respond to and this is one of them. so i think the problem with taking that kind of position on fema some months ago is that sometimes you have hurricanes and the consequences become apparent. >> the question is, richard, there are only a handful of days remaining until november 6th. how does this get -- how much of this gets into the ground water? the romney statement on fema. of course the house
the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states that chicago never anticipated defending. paul ryan was in his home state of wisconsin to encourage relief efforts of campaign victory offices. the native son popularity helped him surge in 2.3 points of the president in real clear politics average of recent wisconsin polls. thursday he will visit virginia where the top ally is dealing with the clean-up. >> we are issuing a letter today to all the voting registrar office around the state. asking them to stay open for up to eight additional hours to make up for the time. that a citizen may not have had to vote absentee. over the last two days. >> i don't think the damage has been massive. not in virginia it appears. especially northern virginia. not necessarily in new hampshire. so, we're not looking at swing states, sustaining the damage. >> devastation hasn't completely disrupted the campaign. advertisements continue and endorsements continue. today, romney picked up support of former chrysler cio and hal sperling, saying he is the right man to help detroit and fix auto industry. for
, is with governor romney. >> i would tell people to be watching wisconsin even more than ohio. paul ryan is very popular there. he's known state wide. his numbers are fantastic, and that's a state that has already survived a recall. there's a good republican organization on the ground because of the scott walker vote. the man did even better in the recall. >> sean: if romney loses ohio, he's got to get colorado, new hampshire, or ohio. >> look. they already had a presidential turnout almost. it was two million people, and the republicans won by six. they have a big ground operation. the other states moving, the ones where they've not been poisoned by money, minnesota, pennsylvania, michigan are also moving because of the national polls. right now this is moving romney, but if they don't -- you know, this could still move back. the bottom line, this storm gives obama the potential to demonstrate something that has been lacking, leadership. his numbers are dropping. whichever state you look at, however you slice it, he's dropping, his approval is going down. republican identification is going up.
eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and following on -- host: of one week to go and looking at the momentum in colorado. the numbers
running mate paul ryan also scrapping rallies in florida and colorado. the congressman, mr. ryan in his home state of wisconsin today thanking volunteers for helping out in storm relief efforts. with the campaigns on hold just seven days out from the election who benefits and who does not? chris stirewalt the fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. mother nature hit the pause button on this race, you know, eight days out from the presidential election, chris, and, you know, at some point this week the thumb will be taken off the pause button, and where are we then? >> exactly. perfectly put, because by the time we get to thursday things will be back in full swing. you know what thursday is, thursday is into the hot zone of the election where you're so close to the vote that there is really not much time that people have, that candidates have to change the trajectory of the race and there isn't time for big concepts or big ideas to sink in and you're just down in that final scramble. so what hurricane sandy has done is taken away these days that both camp
running mate paul ryan will be doing a similar event in wisconsin. romney was briefed by fema homeland security, the weather service. he encouraged crowds in iowa to come together to say this storm is a time for people to put politics aside. >> the damage will probably be significant and, of course, a lot of people will be out of power for a long time. hopefully your thoughts and prayers will join with mine and people across the country as you think about those folks in harm's way. >> reporter: earlier in the day in northern ohio romney struck a somber tone. >> a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. our hearts and our prayers go to them as we think about how tough it's going to be there. >> reporter: he also asked supporters to help those along the east coast with donations to organizations like the red cross. but the storm is taking romney off the trail at a critical time after a rise in poll numbers and surging momentum. he canceled rallies in swing states like ohio iowa wisconsin, new jersey and virginia states where a bipartisan message could
